2019-2020 Principal’s Message

Dear Students and Parents,

On behalf of the William Lehman Elementary School family, I welcome you to the 2019-2020 school year.  I am honored and humbled to continue William Lehman Elementary’ s tradition of academic excellence. Our world class team of teachers and support staff is looking forward to an exciting and productive year full of positive and rewarding learning experiences for your children.  We encourage parents to be a partner in their child’s education. We are convinced that a strong partnership between the home, school and community will positively contribute to the success of our students. 

Our main priority is always the safety and security of our students.  Our school continues to be a CLOSED CAMPUS meaning that the only adults who can enter the building are school personnel and official school volunteers. Photo identification must be presented to the security monitor for general entry to our school, both before and during school hours.  In order to provide parents and students an opportunity to become familiar with where students are to go each morning, parents will be allowed to escort their child into the building during the first two days of school from Monday, August 19th through Tuesday, August 20th.  On Wednesday, August 21st, we will begin implementing the closed campus procedures.  A letter with detailed information will be sent home on the first day of school. 

Attending school daily is very important and directly impacts student success.  Arriving to school on time is also part of having great attendance.  Please make a commitment to have your child in school on time every day.  Set aside 30 minutes daily to read to and/or with your child.  Information about our school can be found on our school’s website at https://www.williamlehmanelementary.org/.  Additionally, check the parent portal to monitor your child’s academic progress throughout the year.  It is important that you attend scheduled meetings for parents and teachers.  We need your support to provide a stimulating environment full of successful experiences for your child.

Please be reminded that all students are encouraged to eat a free, healthy breakfast in our cafeteria.  At William Lehman Elementary, we strongly uphold our dress code policy.  Please visit our web page for specific information.

On the first day of school, students are to report to their Homeroom class.  Please log-in to the parent portal for information on where you should report on the first day.  Posters will also be displayed with homeroom information for all students.  

The William Lehman School staff is ready to answer any questions and help you with all your concerns.  We continue to dedicate ourselves to reaching high standards of excellence in education.  Our doors are always open for your input and support.  As a key stakeholder, your involvement is paramount to our accomplishments and desire to attain organizational performance excellence.  Our goal is to enable your child to achieve success as a lifelong learner and future leader.  If we can be of further assistance, please give us the opportunity to meet with you. Join me, as we rise and live up to the 2019-2020 theme One School, One Team!
